I’ll second the interest in sweetheart tables. I’m a bit keen but partner is not, he doesn’t like to be centre of attention. (Um, you’re getting married champ – all eyes on us all day! But he says the wedding is all about the bride… no!)

We are most likely going to be doing a sweetheart table. This is mostly because our venue has a gorgeous big bay window that looks out over the vineyards, which will be an amazing backdrop in the evening, but our ten person bridal party won’t fit inside the bay very well.

So we are thinking the sweetheart table for myself and Fiance, and then slightly separate tables for the bridesmaids/groomsmen on each side, following the angle of the windows. So its a semi-sweetheart, lol.

we’re having a sweetheart table, everyone else will be sat on large round tables and ours will be a 6ft rectangular table, just having the centre piece on it the same as everyone else, and we will be sat just on the edge of the room, but central to everyone, our family tables will be closest to us, and everyone else on the others

@PoeticDoveInLA:  I just posted this same question this morning. Here is a pic of my inspiration. I would really love to see how other brides did theirs.

I love the idea of a sweetheart table, thinking that our wedding party members would better appreciate being able to sit with their sweeties (we are among the very last to get married in his social circle) and other family members.  Mr. S was NOT interested in that.  He’s hindered by having been to a thousand weddings in his life, and thinks that the way everyone else does things is perfect just because that’s how it was done before.  Enter me: who has only recently been to her first wedding and couldn’t give two hoots about what others have done.

Alas, we’re only doing this wedding thing for him, so I give him a lot of leeway regarding what he would like to see happen.

*Sigh* They’re so cute though!

Our sweetheart table was right in the front/middle of the other round tables. We weren’t there very long (probably the 20 minutes we got to eat), so we don’t have any great pictures. The yellow arrow shows where the table was (their were several tables behind it (the shot was taken from the middle of the other tables) and more tables outside through the exit door you can see in the 2nd picture. The second picture is the only one I have of us sitting at the table. Everyone had to pass our table to get to the food & the dance floor was directly to the right, so it was close to all the action. We decorated it only with a vase to hold my bouquet & it was considerably smaller than the other tables. Like I said, though, we were barely there, but it was a convient spot for us to have as a “home base”.

I don’t have a picture of the full table but I do have a picture of the decoration we used. 

We had tables on either side of the dance floor and our sweetheart table was in front of the dance floor in between the tables on either side.

I found this picture for you. Here’s one side of the tables with the sweetheart in the background and then the dance floor is where the black tiles start and then there were other tables on the other side. Ugh I hated that tablecloth they put on our sweetheart table.

@gonnabeMrsHH That is a lovely pic, I’ve added it to my inspiration pics.
 
MrN & I decided on a sweetheart table because our reception is in a tent and space is limited so we are having a small table on the dancefloor for us (round) with 2 small square tables (angled somewhat) on either side of us for our bridal party & their SO’s then our family will be at a banquet table holding 8 people in front of us then on either side of them will be banquet tables holding 18 people each, it’s the most organized way to seat everyone and have space for guests to get in/out of their seats w/out having to squeeze past others (same tent size was rented for MrN’s sisters wedding & round tables made it VERY crowded).

@MrsN2Be: Nice! I’ve also mailed it to our decorator and told her how much I would love to have something like this. I’ve already bought the tall glasses and am looking for some fake pearls to decorate as in the picture. I love the idea of placing the table not too far from other tables to be close to all the action 🙂
